Fialka means 'violet' and I designed the shawl after I decided that I just have to make a purple shawl that will look like that beautiful little spring flower. When I think of spring, I imagine snowdrops and violets, which grew wild along the paths in the countryside when I was a child. I remember bringing home the tiny purple bouquets and enjoying not only their beautiful color, but also their incredible scent. The lace in this shawl reminds me of their petals and it takes me back in time... Fialka is my classic bottom-up crescent design; the shawl is worked from the bottom edge in one piece starting with the lace edge and is shaped into a crescent with simple stockinette short rows (no wraps). The lace panel and the bind off include beads for texture, but the design will work without beads as well.

Artist by calling, art historian by training, completely obsessed with yarn. The colors, the textures, the infinite possibilities within each skein… I love knitting cables. I love knitting lace. Cables combined with lace are my idea of a knitting nirvana. I have been designing knits ever since I first picked up the needles about ten years ago; my first ‘swatch’ was a sweater for my baby boy. Since then, my designs have appeared in numerous publications, such as Interweave Knits, Jane Austen Knits, Twist Collective, and Knitty. All of my designs and projects can be found at I am a little bit of a nomad; originally from Europe, I’ve lived in five US states and two European countries. I’ve studied fashion design and I have an extensive background in studio arts and art history. All these travels and studies, along with my love of nature, continue to inspire my knitting.
